Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are finishing their look at the movies of the 1970s one year at a time, closing the decade on 1979's Oscar-winning satire "Being There" and "Time After Time" about H.G. Welles chasing Jack the Ripper through moder-day (a.k.a. 1979) America.

Episode 392 includes:

-Marvel in further trouble and the changes that may be ahead to course correct Phase 5. 

-R.I.P. Michael Gambon, Suzanne Sommers, and Matthew Perry

-Nate grimaces through "Pain Hustlers" while Ben champions one of the two 2012 movies he recently watched. 

-By the Decade -- 1979 -- "Time After Time" / "Being There"

-The guys discuss their disappointment with the imagination of a cat-and-mouse game between Welles and Jack the Ripper that doesn't know what to do with its characters, and the quaintness of "Being There," a much-heralded comedy that is a little too gentle in our modern age to land too many satirical blows.
